Princess Chichibu's Honeysuckle Tiara, as worn by Empress Michiko
This is the third of the tiaras currently at Empress Michiko's disposal to be covered here (previously: the Imperial Chrysanthemum Tiara and the Meiji Scroll Tiara) and I find it to be the most delicately designed of the three. The tiara features diamond honeysuckle or palmette motifs with large diamonds at the top and in the center, separately by diamond loops filled by lines of diamonds in graduated sizes.
